Inspection and repair of composite rotor blades requires specific knowledge of composites and of rotor blade design. In house inspectors examine the rotor blade visually, by tapping and by using NDI. They determine if there is (in)visible damage or delamination within the structure and they assess the severity of the damage.
Repair of rotor blades requires specific skills to guarantee that strength, aerodynamic shape, weight and balance remain within defined limits after repair. Experienced specialists perform required authorised repairs.
Protecting components against environmental conditions in a proper way increases the Mean Time Between Unscheduled Repair. Components are painted in a state of the art facility by experienced paint specialists.
Proper balancing of a rotor blade decreases the required number of Rotor Track &Balance (RT&B) flights to get the rotor blade set balanced. Our trained personnel are experts in accurate balancing of rotor blades.
